I enjoy working with all my clients. I work with children, adolescents, and adults with a myriad of issues. I have a particular expertise and understanding working with trauma issues. I have 15 years of police experience that allows me to better understand the needs of the service professionals (police, fire, nurses, military, etc.) clients and their families and how best to help them in a compassionate and caring way. The needs of these individuals can be unique. From substance abuse and anger control to depression and suicidal ideation, the stressors of these individuals require an understanding and knowledge, which I have.

Welcome! Finding support is such a hard yet valuable step in your healing journey! I work in a client-centered way to help you understand & cope with present-day stressors and get to the root of the issues/trauma that keep you feeling stuck or disconnected. I use validation, active listening, and intuition to ensure you feel seen, heard, and supported by someone who deeply cares. Trying to manage an issue that seems like no one understands can be a very lonely experience, and sometimes it takes an outside perspective to gain a felt sense of clarity. My goal is to quickly have you feeling like you aren’t alone as you heal & grow.

I am passionate about working with adolescents, adults, and couples. However, I have been able to work with a wide range of clients along with various presenting concerns while obtaining my Master's degree. I use comprehensive theories that help me see the client as a unique individual, as well as who they are within their various complex systems. Despite gravitating towards specific theories, I will pull from other theories to tailor a treatment that is best fit for the client. I'm a firm believer in therapy being a collaborative process, I strive to have the client feel heard, feel comfortable, and be an active agent in therapy.

I work with individuals from ages 5 to adult who are struggling with both a mental health issue such as depression, anxiety, life changes or grief and/or an additional diagnosis of autism or other intellectual disability. I also help parents, caregivers, and others who love someone with an intellectual disability. Being the person with these diagnoses or someone who cares for them can feel isolating and confusing. While certain behavioral therapies can be useful for certain individuals, they are not always the correct fit for others. I can offer alternative ways to change undesirable behaviors for all ages.

Reaching out for help in our most vulnerable moments can be overwhelming and scary. Sometimes our self talk convinces us that we should figure it out on our own, or that our problems aren’t as bad as they could be - and we find ourselves hesitant to make that next step. I will meet your bravery and vulnerability with compassion, curiosity, feeling, and a bit of humor. I want to center what matters to you, develop skills and abilities, and help you rediscover a fullness in being alive and in your body. My areas of experience include working with individuals of the LBGTQ+, and navigating barriers to receiving gender affirming care.
